Seriously one of the best apps for any transit I have witnessed. Compared to Connecticut (SEAT bus) and everywhere else, this is how buses should be. You can look up your trip from your current location, it will GPS you to the proper bus stop, you can even watch the buses drive around on the app. You can buy tickets via your phone and even pay with your app. Hands down a must have if you're car less in the Des Moines area.

Storage options do not work as stated. Passes stored in Cloud are not accessible on other devices. I just got a new phone and the pass stored in the Cloud says "Saved Elsewhere" and doesn't show up at all in storage settings. My friend who had his pass stored on his device also couldn't access his without a connection to wifi without service on his phone. This is a serious inconvenience especially when DART is closed and we have church at 9AM in the morning. Please fix or stop false advertising.

Each and everytime, no matter the phone I've had, memory dude, etc, this app is slower than molasses. The bus drivers get a frown ea time I say I have to wait to load the qr code for my ride. That's on them, really. I'm not sure what it is that makes it turtle like, but I do wish the QA folks would get a fix for this made.
